I think I mis-typed when entering a bios password and now I am locked out of the bios.  Machine is a Panasonic CF-29.  Panasonic says they can fix if I ship to them and pay a $125.00 service charge.  Do I have any cheaper options?

Thanks,

Mike

Removing the battery dod not work.  Sent the unit back to Panasonic and they cleared it for me.
